    There's a new Microbrewery on Red Rum Drive across from Verizon...opened by a couple of guys who used to work for Dominion.

    Check them out....I haven't made it out there yet, but as a big fan of the former Old Dominion Brewpub, I figured I would give them some free advertising.

    Currently open to fill growlers and have an "open house" the first Wednesday of the month.

    I went to the last open house. Solid beers, nice owners. Definitely a much needed (re)addition to the neighborhood.

    They're now open Wed-Sat from 12-6 and conduct Saturday afternoon tours. Their website is woeful, but they consistently post information to Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/LostRhino

    Grabbed a growler of the New River last weekend. They are just getting started. They will only be distributing kegs locally for some time until they begin canning.

    Will they eventually serve food like Old Dominion did?

    Thats the rumor I heard a while back. Don't know if they backed off from that idea though. Stop in and get a growler and chat the folks up. They were super friendly when I went in. Let me tasty everything on tap.

    Yes, they do plan to open a brewpub with food at some point.

    From what I gather, they will be opening a tasting room first. Not sure if they will be selling appetizers at that point or not. They are aquiring the space next dor to them as well which will eventually become the pub. This is at least a year off.

    I agree that the owners an staff are very friendly and accomodating. They are doing this because they love beer. Please go support them so they can expand and be successful. They are local guys making local beer and not supported by any of the big guys out there.

    They are at the brewfest this weekend and also doing tours at the brewery. When I went I got to drink right off the fermenter......where else can you do thet ?

    These guys may have the best beer in the world, but their advertising flat out sucks. I cut through Red Rum every day on the way to work and I've never seen any signs. I just went to their Web site and not only is there no map, but there is no address either. Same thing with the Facebook. C'mon, guys, get a clue!

    They can't have signs out because it would violate both state law and county ordinances. That is one of the problems with a location like theirs is they have no visibility.

    Their FB page does have their address.

    There's also a Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/#!/@rhinobrew

    I think they are in the same building/row as Potomac Swim School, but I could be wrong.

    Yes - they are. Just a few doors down.
